Why don't you stop your nonsense? No one who can READ believes for one minute that the liberals here are anywhere close to being as offensive, vicious, duplicitous and radical as are the Right Wingers....including you.

I can't believe you. First of all the article I first read said NOTHING about him previously being a Democrat. Just because you read ONE article doesn't mean everyone has read the exact same article as you.
Second, it does not matter if he was a Democrat previously. He is still a HYPOCRITE now. Because he lived a gay lifestyle surrounded by gay friends and now that he is running as a Republican he chooses to deny his friends and coworkers any happiness because he is a HYPOCRITE.
Another thing, you don't know if he changed his mind. A person who changes their mind and does not want to be revealed as a hypocrite comes out and ADMITS who he was in the past and the life he led. They do not LIE about it to win a political position. This HYPOCRITE lied about his past.
All your ranting about Obama, Latinos and African Americans has nothing to do with this man's HYPOCRISY and LIES. I know you can't grasp that, but it is a fact.
All over the media this HYPOCRITE is being portrayed as just another REPUBLICAN hypocrite.
As this guy (below) says.....it's about CREDIBILITY.....or the LACK of it.
"Last year, as Wiles was considering a run for a county commissioner seat, Scott Cumbie, the chairman of the Forsyth Republican Party, asked Wiles whether he was Mona Sinclair, according to Wiles and Cumbie.
Wiles denied it, both Cumbie and Wiles said about two weeks ago.
“It’s not just about lifestyle. It’s about credibility,” Cumbie said."
Another thing, in your ridiculous Facebook link it says Obama has been mum about this issue. That is a lie. He has spoken about it many, many times. And it also says that the party's support of same sex marriage only came about AFTER Obama supported it. THAT is another lie.
You are posting material from a stupid FACEBOOK page written by people with an agenda. Their agenda is their OPINION only and does not support any harebrained argument you think (wrongly) you are making.

. Victoria figures, as long as the target of a"filth"attack is a conservative, that's cool, and actually funny, because as you know, "we" have it coming to us for having the temerity to disagree politically with her socialist sensibilities.
She probably also thinks we have worse than that coming, a LOT WORSE.
VICTORIA and TSF, and State, and Red, are unified in their belief of our "evil".

Follows is what an eye witness wrote. Apparently, the report of sending him to the hospital could not have been true because of the time line. Stopping in the middle of an execution is about as stupid as it gets. I support the death penalty for animals like Lockett but not like this. They need to keep a 45 handy just in case something like this happens.

In his timeline sent to the governor, Patton wrote that an examination of the IV found that “the blood vein had collapsed, and the drugs had either absorbed into tissue, leaked out or both.” Patton was told that there were no other veins available and that there hadn’t been enough drugs administered to kill Lockett, so the execution was called off at 6:56 p.m., he wrote.

Patton also issued a stay of execution for Charles Warner, who was set to be executed later that night. Warner was supposed to become the 112th person executed in Oklahoma using lethal injection and the 21st person executed in the country this year. He was convicted of raping and murdering an 11-month-old, the daughter of his girlfriend at the time. His execution has been delayed indefinitely, with Gov. Mary Fallin (R) saying that his execution would be on hold until after a review into Lockett’s execution was completed.

The reporters were told not long after the execution was called off that they had to leave. They walked back to the white vans, reporters comparing notes and tearing out their notes, before returning to the media center on the penitentiary’s grounds.

“That’s when they came in and told us he had been pronounced dead of a heart attack at 7:06 p.m.,” Branstetter said.

Patton took no questions. News about the botched execution quickly got out as some reporters began tweeting details from the scene. The story drew worldwide attention to the death penalty, drawing a response from the White House and criticism from opponents of capital punishment. Branstetter and the other reporters who had witnessed the scene stayed in the media center to finish their stories and recount what they had watched.

TSF I know you're a decent man.
But frankly, the hyperbole here has gotten out of control, and certainly I'm not exempting myself.

I promise you TSF, if I wanted to I could go state by state and find stories of stupid democrats,
but to what end?
It easily balances out the other way as well.
The issues count.
I have already made several comments about Wal-Mart, no responses.
I tried to tie in raising the minimum wage to increased automation.
No responses.

No, I haven't called Republicans every name in the book. But you have continued to LIE and claim that the liberals here have said things they did not say.

Ben didn't invalidate anything. Look at the damn polls. Democrats, by a large margin support same sex marriage freedom. Republicans, like the hypocrite in the article, do not.

"Democrats tend to favor equal rights for gay and lesbian couples e.g. the right to get married and adopt children. Republicans believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman so they do not support gay marriage or allowing them to adopt children."

Let me clue you in on something. Just because there is a small group of Democrats who only support traditional marriage does not invalidate the FACT that the majority of Democrats support AN INDIVIDUAL'S FREEDOM to marry whomever they want to marry.

Are you just a deceiver or are you unable to think very clearly or deeply? I already know Ben's problem.

One last thing.....Ben trying to turn my article about the GOP hypocrite into some sort of harebrained diversion about a small group of Democrats who want to live in the 19th century and you supporting his harebrained, poorly thought-out diversion does not have ANYTHING to do with the original point.....which was:

THIS GUY is just another, in a very long list, of Republican hypocrites.

See? It has nothing to do with Ben's nonsense. And nothing to do with your blind support of Ben's nonsense.

You are an idiot, "News, Walmart, jobs and the rise of self-service checkout tech" "Tech vs. jobs "People are not getting enough hours now, and when we have the self-checkout, people are going to be getting even less hours," said Janet Sparks, a Walmart customer service manager at a store in Louisiana who is also involved with Organization United for Respect at Walmart, a group supported by the United Food and Commercial Workers union. She believes understaffing creates demand for self-checkout systems. " Do you EVEN have the capability of connecting the dots? Do you run a business or even come close or just suck off the teat of the gov.

"Automated self-checkout "does eliminate jobs, there's not much question about that. The question is how many?" said Frank Levy, an MIT professor emeritus of urban economics."

"Levy sees self-checkout automation as the next wave of technological change in this area, the first being barcoding. Barcoding improved the volume of work a cashier could handle. The question is whether there is offsetting job creation to make up for job losses due to automation.

In general, if computerization enables you to lower prices to stimulate more demand, employment will rise, he said.

But checkout cashier salaries are just a small part of the cost of groceries, said Levy, who doesn't believe the labor cost savings will have much impact on prices.

"What kinds of job creation is the economy going to see in other areas that might soak up labor, as opposed to just driving down the wages so cheap so that you get more jobs created that way?" said Levy. "

"Producing the automated systems will create jobs, but Levy said that the net overall effect may be job loss. "We should be thinking about it as a big problem," he said. "

Well Victoria I must say you seem to be indifferent to daily life.
Wal-Mart in Lenoir just ADDED A BUNCH of self-checkouts to what they already HAD.

"Walmart has self-service checkout systems installed in about 1,800 stores. Some of the 10,000 new systems, a purchase announced in November by the vendor NCR Corp., will be used to upgrade older systems. The deployment is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, expanding self-checkout systems to about 2,500 of Walmart's approximately 4,000 stores. There are about eight checkout kiosks per store, the company said.

Despite Walmart's decision, automated checkout faces problems from customers."
